How long has it been since we heard about governments complaining to Apple about not getting help to hack into a terrorist’s or criminal’s iPhone? Was it last year? It seems like it has been a while since anybody cared. Publicly.
Sure, politicians and authorities will go online or in public and ask Apple and Facebook to give them a backdoor into user accounts, but nobody generates much noise about that privacy issue anymore?
Somebody already hacked the iPhone and doesn’t want the public to know about it.
